A note about serious food allergies
Yee-haw! Too forced? We aren't claiming to be from Texas, but we think this chili is pretty darn tasty without the bells, whistles, and yee-haws. Butternut squash and turkey flavored with chili powder are mixed with tomatoes, then simmered. Served with classic chili fixin's, you might have the urge, after you eat your bowl clean, to let loose a classic Texan yelp, no matter what state you live in. Tip: To remove the core of a tomato, carefully cut a shallow circle around the stem with a small knife, then remove circle.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.
